Saddle Taps on Round are a great way to branch a round duct run off of another round sheet metal duct run at a 45 degree angle for improved air flow and efficiency. As with all ductwork products from The Duct Shop, they are manufactured from the highest quality galvanized sheet metal and to our exacting standards.
Installation Tip — You simply cut the proper size hole in your round sheet metal duct run, then attach your Saddle Tap using sheet metal screws through the flange into the duct on approximately 6" centers. We do recommend that you seal around the Saddle Tap connection to the round sheet metal duct with a duct sealer to prevent air leakage. Also see installation tip for Flexible Duct or Sheet Metal Duct, depending on which type you will be attaching to.
